Paging James

This post is solely for the benefit of someone who commented on one of my earlier posts which has now disappeared from public view somewhere into the archives.

Re: Riding to Binna Burra. The road to Binna Burra is indeed fully sealed. You'll have a 7km sustained climb from Advancetown to Lower Beechmont to contend with, but the gradient of that isn't overly steep (probably less than Mt Coot-tha). After that, it's largely rolling country for most of the remainder of the climb. There are a couple of steepish sections along the way, but they're pretty short for the most part. The place where you might struggle with the gearing you have, is the final assault on Mt Roberts for the last 2km or so. That can get nasty.

Overall though, you should have a great ride. Just watch the cross-winds on the Beechmont Plateau if it's really blowing.

G'day Chris - I'm from SA and for the first time recently spent time in the Gold Coast Hinterland (including Binna Burra). It wasn't by bike - but otherwise a lovely part of the world. Not sure how you cope with the nutty drivers about. The Gold Coast and Brisbane have some of the most reckless and agressive drivers I've encountered anywhere in the world! Keep safe and keep riding... And I hope you don't climb any of those 15% roads about the place! :-)

Hi Adrian,

You get used to the nutty drivers after a while. Aggressive drivers are usually pretty predictable, it's the ones that are just plain incompetent that worry me the most. Even so, it's not the end of the world, and it helps me adapt to places like New Zealand when I go away.

15% roads? I've got small gearing, I'm ok. :)
